Robert Quinton was my father's godfather and was a longtime resident of Berkeley, CA, living with his sister Mary Quinton. Both Quintons died in the 1930s. I read my father's autographed copy of this book as a child and have it on my desk to this day. For a man lacking in much formal education, Captain Quinton was surprisingly good at writing.
